Comparative Literature Association of India
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 6, 2021

The comparative approach acknowledges the co-existence of diverse entities in our world and takes for its province the understanding of multiple relations between these entities, and the cultures of which they are constituents. Comparative practice demands that difference be respected paving the way for mutuality and understanding. This approach is particularly  fruitful in the study of the arts and their nesting cultures in the Asian subcontinent.

Sunday, January 31, 2021

The Charles Dickens Society is pleased to announce an extended deadline for abstracts for the 2021 Symposium, which will take place online from July 12-14, 2021. As you may know, we only recently decided to convert the 2021 Symposium to an online meeting. One terrific side effect is that, since no one needs to make plans for travel, we can extend the deadline and get acceptances out a little later. The new deadline is therefore Sunday, January 31, 2021. To have your work considered, please submit an abstract of no more than 300 words to Sean Grass at scggsl@rit.edu.

Theorizing Zombiism II: Undead Again

 

29-31 July, 2021

 

University of Gothenburg

 

The zombie as an allegory for cultural, social, and scientific analysis spans almost every discipline including humanities, biology, mathematics, anthropology, economics, and political science. This range of use for the zombie narrative is a clear indication of its adaptability and viability as a distinct framework for critical theory. Theorizing Zombiism 2: Undead again will thus serve as a timely and much-needed platform for the development of international and interdisciplinary relationships between researchers, educators, practitioners and other interested parties.

A one-day international online conference on 22 April 2021

The English Research Institute at De Montfort University in Leicester, England, is running a one-day international conference to reflect on closure of theatres in Shakespeare's time and our own.

It is well known that the theatres of Shakespeare's time repeatedly had to close as part of sensible precautions against the spread of the most serious communicable disease of the day: the plague. To stop the disease spreading, early moderns had to practise social distancing; without it a playgoer might bring home from the theatre more than just new ideas and ways of speaking.
